Taking Advantage of Multiple Numerical Solvers in SewerGEMS

Part of the Hydraulics and Hydrology Video Series (more info)

Did you know that if you have SewerGEMS, you also have SewerCAD and StormCAD? (and if you have CivilStorm, you also have StormCAD) The functionality and numerical solvers of these products are included with SewerGEMS and have the ability to do things such as automatically design pipes and perform a peak flow analysis without having to convert your model or open it in another product. To learn more, watch this short video. The video covers the following:

•Using the Implicit Dynamic and GVF Convex (SewerCAD) solvers in a small wasterwater model.
•Using the Implicit Dynamic and GVF Rational (StormCAD) solvers in a small stormwater model.
•Extreme Flow methods for sewer flow peaking
•Rational method-based automated design of stormwater pipes

Applicable products/versions:
•SewerCAD, SewerGEMS, CivilStorm, StormCAD: 08.11.03.77 and higher
